Flash Floods in Colorado


by Ryan Overton

In the small town of Commerce City, Colorado northeast of Denver a very scary situation is underway. Evacuations in the town have been ongoing the last couple hours. Heavy rains the last two days have put pressure on nearby rivers and streams with rain falling at 1-2 inches per hour.


Because of this, a dam near Commerce City is about to break, releasing a wall of water about 15-20ft deep and 300 yards wide.

There has also been 3 people confirmed dead and another missing.
